They had been making their list and checking it twice.

Boxes and tags were rummaged around as a giant stack of gifts grew bigger and bigger in size.

It was not Santa’s workshop, but the Rack Room Shoes in Landstown Commons, which was filled with the same holiday spirit of joy and generosity Wednesday morning.

Management opened the store doors early to allow Landstown Elementary School (LES) staff to pick out shoes for 115 families in need. All total, the store donated $7,000 in shoes for LES families.

Rack Room has been making this donation annually for the past seven years as part of the chain’s Shoes That Fit campaign. Throughout the course of the year, individual store locations take donations to support local children. Each location then partners with nearby schools to help connect with families and get them shoes for the winter. The Red Mill Rack Room Shoes location, for example, supports Seatack and Bettie F. Williams elementary schools.
